Notice that this equation is given in a form of fraction. To solve for x, we need remove the fraction. | |

We can remove these fractions by multiplying both sides with 6. | |

Notice that, we can simplify this equation as shown on the left. | |

Now, notice that we need to remove the brackets in 2(x-2). This gives 2x -4. | |

Next, to solve for x, we need to put all the terms with x on one side. | |

To do so, we add +2x to both sides. | |

Similarly, we add +4 to both sides. | |

Now, we can continue to simplify this equation. | |

To find x, we just need to divide both sides with 4. | |

Finally, we have the answer, x = 8. |
